An unusual melange of influences
Aug 2020
Doing some pre-reading will help you understand how unusual this mosque is in the Malaysian or even global context. Visitors are welcome inside but will be required to cover up appropriately. The architectural blend is pretty unique and the mosque is centrally located near other historical sites, which is useful.

Eclectic mix of architecture
Feb 2020
The Kampung Kling Mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Malacca and one of many places of worship on the street known as Harmony street. For me, the building is notable for the eclectic mix of South East Asian, Chinese and Indian architectural styles. The main building of the mosque has clear South East Asian influences, while the gateway is Chinese influenced and the minaret is clearly influenced by Chinese style pagodas.

Worth a quick look to see such an eclectic mix of architecture.

Multicommunal Value Sharing
Jan 2020 • Couples
Beautiful architecture and nice white and green colour scheme matching. Located besides a Hindu Temple and near a historic Chinese Temple coexisted for a long past. A true multicommunal value reflecting the cohesiveness of the Malaccan people regardless of race and colour. A great place to visit and learn their respective history.

Worth seeing

There are a fair old number of temples that are all easy to find and see as part of a self guided walking tour. Pretty good to see this one.

Beautiful and Historic
Aug 2019
Located on a side street on the Jonker Street side of the river, this mosque is very old a beautiful. It's more a human scale than some of the larger mosques - even the Strait of Malacca Mosque which isn't particularly big. But it is classical architecture. We weren't able to go inside but we could see how beautiful it was from the street.

Little hidden gem
Aug 2019 • Couples
We first entered this mosque without any expectations, but we got out really happy about this moment
First you need to cover your legs with a sari if you are a man or cover your legs l, shoulders and hair if you are a woman
Then we met a lovely lady who explained everything about this little place with such dedication ! (All of this was free !)
This mosque is smaller than the big one in the south of Malacca but the inside of this one is by far more beautiful
Thanks again to this lady guide who spoke a good English to us and made huge efforts to make us understand the customs of her religion ! She was open to every questions and answered all of them with a lovely smile !

You would definitely be missing something by not going there !

Surprising mixture of architectural designs
Mar 2019 • Couples
Mosque is open to non Muslims but you must be dressed appropriately.Also you are not permitted to enter the prayer area.Signs are there to guide you.Construction of the mosque was completed in mid 1700s.It is unique in that though it was mainly Sumatran, it had strong Hindu influence.Also you will note that some carvings are Chinese.Some steel posts are Moorish.Glazed tiles appear to be English and Portugese.Columns and arches are also western.
Mosque in a street where next to it is a Hindu temple and further up a Chinese temple, an ideal symbolism of harmony of faiths!

Ancient and reverential
Dec 2018 • Solo
This is one of Malacca's oldest and most reverential landmarks. This mosque was built way way back in the early 1800s and meshes several different architectural styles. You can see it's roof is similar to those temples in Bali, a tower at the entrance, and inside, tiles from Europe. Just beautiful.
